Food tasted ok, but I dont think they've heard of a jalapeno or serrano pepper. I asked for hotter salsa and just got a mild tomato sauce. Their basic salsa tastes like ketchup. Chips are out of a bag. Entres were decent, but again, no spice.

My team had dinner at this location yesterday & as always it was excellent service. The drinks are made to perfection, the waiters are friendly & the enviroment is clean. Perfect place to mingle with business partners in Columbus.

Looked better on the outside than what was revealed on the inside. The fancy dressings did not reveal an exemplary meal by any stretch.

We sat at a booth next to a table of a dozen young and noisy youth. Strike 1

We did have a very nice and attentive waiter who kept our chips, water and salsa supplies up to par. However, the salsa appeared and tasted as if someone added a little Texas Pete to Prego Pasta sauce. No real "beef" to the salsa. Strike 2

My meal was the two burritos with beef tips that were pan-fried.... they were great with a dollop of sour cream and some decent guacamole. Could have been a meal for 2. That was a home run.

So all in all.... one hit and 2 strikes will leave me with just average.

NOTE to management: Make the inside as swift as the outside.

We typically go to his place every other week but never again. We went for Cinco de Mayo and it was the worst experience EVER! The wait to get a seat was only 15-20 minutes, but we waited 30min before we even got a server, another 30 just to get drinks and another 30 to get the food. The server not once came over and asked how everything was nor did he replenish anything. When we finally flagged him down, an hour later, he wouldn't even serve us another round of drinks. He said he was to busy to get them so he would just bring the ticket. "ARE YOU KIDDING ME"! We even spoke with the manager and he said " pay for the ticket here and go to the bar and get your drinks because we are to busy." ARE YOU SERIOUS! I'm never going back.
